Harold Weis, born on December 5, 1922 to Eugene and Mary (Wilhelm), was raised on the family farm in Rozellville, WI. A hard working man who served his community and his county, Harold was an army sergeant in the Korean War, and remained active with the KC’s, VFW, Eagles, Senior Services and other organizations throughout his working years and his retirement. Harold worked many years for the Cass County Road Department. In his leisure time, Harold maintained a garden for many years and enjoyed playing cards with friends or with family.
Harold married Leona Rheault on April 11, 1950 at St. Benedicts Catholic Church in Wild Rice ND. Family was important to Harold, and they made regular trips to Wisconsin to see his family, and remained an active part of the lives of their growing family in Fargo, where he lived most of his adult life.
Harold was a man of strong faith who served his Lord in many ways, including dedicating much of his time and energy to the church. We are confident that Harold has now joined his parents, his siblings Sr. Mercita, Norbert, and Melvin, and his children Allen, Steven, and Joyce in heaven.
Harold is survived by his wife of nearly 65 years, Leona; their children Carol (William Petty) and Kevin (Judee Borchert); four grandchildren Elizabeth (Peter Elizondo), Christine Petty, Matthew Petty, and Alex Dawson-Weis; three great-grandchildren; and his siblings Dorothy, Marie, Donald (Betty), Clement (Marcie), and Virginia (Jerry Johnson).
On April 5, 2015 Harold spent his final hours with family at his bedside.
Visitation will be Thursday April 9th from 6-7 p.m., with a prayer service at 7 p.m., at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Fargo. Visitation will resume Friday at noon at St. Anthony’s, followed by the funeral at 1 p.m.
